Cherry reveals MX RGB Nature White switch for illuminated keyboards

Posted on Tuesday, November 10 2015 @ 14:35 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
Cherry has created a new Cherry MX RGB Nature White mechanical keyboard switch to address the rising market of gaming keyboards with RGB multicolor LED illumination, many of which are using switches from other manufacturers.

The new MX switch features a transparent cover, which offers a more consistent lighting, and a scattering surface with a lens. The switch itself is designed to have no pressure point, it features linear actuation and has an actuation force of 55cN.

  • RGB nature white switch: Without pressure point, linear actuation - easy switching function with a defined force of approx. 55 cN without contact feedback
  • MX switch variant optimised for use with SMD LEDs (RGB or single colour)
  • More consistent lighting throughout the keycap due to optimised, transparent casing and scattering surface including lens.
  • Option to use all 16.7 million RGB colours in high luminosity (scope of supply does not include LED)
  • SMD LEDs directly mounted on the circuit board for cost-efficient, fully automated production
  • High-precision mechanical keyswitch based on the MX standard
  • World exclusive CHERRY Gold Crosspoint technology
  • Short bounce time for high switching frequency (such as for fast typing)
  • Self-cleaning contacts, resistant to dust and dirt
  • Over 50 million keystrokes / contact switches per module with no loss of quality
  • Engineered and Made in Germany.
  • Cherry MX Nature White

    The first mechanical keyboards based on this switch are expected soon.
